[image]Northern Colombia (before floods) - Jacques Descloitres, MODIS Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC
Two months of heavy rain have taken a toll on northern Colombia. The rainy season, which runs from October to December, started with several days of intense rain in early October and has continued with torrential downpours through November. Many international aid agencies are calling this the most damaging rainy season in many years as floods and landslides have claimed the lives of 19 people and left over 200,000 homeless...

Due west of the city of Pasto, Colombia, layer upon layer of ash, lava, cinders, and other volcanic debris pile up to form the Galeras Volcano. On May 24, 2005, Colombian officials ordered 9,000 people living near the flanks of the volcano to evacuate, as seismic activity increased and the threat of eruption loomed. According to reports (in Spanish) from Colombia’s Institute of Geology and Mining published on June 1, 2005, the volcano is likely to erupt in coming days or weeks.This image shows...
